Mandrake Security Advisory MDVSA-2009:281 (cups)

Published: 2009-10-27 00:37:56
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Technical Details:
Multiple integer overflows in the JBIG2 decoder in Xpdf 3.02pl2 and earlier, CUPS 1.3.9 and earlier, and other products allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PDF file, related to (1) JBIG2Stream::readSymbolDictSeg, (2) JBIG2Stream::readSymbolDictSeg, and (3) JBIG2Stream::readGenericBitmap (CVE-2009-0146, CVE-2009-0147). Integer overflow in the TIFF image decoding routines in CUPS 1.3.9 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted TIFF image, which is not properly handled by the (1) _cupsImageReadTIFF function in the imagetops filter and (2) imagetoraster filter, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-0163). Integer overflow in the JBIG2 decoder in Xpdf 3.02pl2 and earlier, as used in Poppler and other products, when running on Mac OS X, has unspecified impact, related to g*allocn (CVE-2009-0165). The JBIG2 decoder in Xpdf 3.02pl2 and earlier, CUPS 1.3.9 and earlier, and other products allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PDF file that triggers a free of uninitialized memory (CVE-2009-0166). Multiple integer overflows in the pdftops filter in CUPS 1.1.17, 1.1.22, and 1.3.7 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF file that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow, possibly related to (1) Decrypt.cxx, (2) FoFiTrueType.cxx, (3) gmem.c, (4) JBIG2Stream.cxx, and (5) PSOutputDev.cxx in pdftops/. NOTE: the JBIG2Stream.cxx vector may overlap CVE-2009-1179 (CVE-2009-0791). The ippReadIO function in cups/ipp.c in cupsd in CUPS before 1.3.10 does not properly initialize memory for IPP request packets, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash) via a scheduler request with two consecutive IPP_TAG_UNSUPPORTED tags (CVE-2009-0949). Two integer overflow flaws were found in the CUPS pdftops filter. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause pdftops to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the lp user if the file was printed. (CVE-2009-3608, CVE-2009-3609) This update corrects the problems. Affected: Corporate 4.0

Recommendations:
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you. https://secure1.securityspace.com/smysecure/catid.html?in=MDVSA-2009:281

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update to cups announced via advisory MDVSA-2009:281.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
